Palau de la Música


Johannes Brahms Symphony No. 2 in D Major, op. 73

Johannes Brahms Symphony No. 4 in E minor, op. 98


After being forced to cancel his tour last season due to health problems, Zubin Mehta, who is undoubtedly one of the world’s most prestigious orchestral conductors, returns to Barcelona at the helm of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. Founded in 1893, the Münchner Philharmoniker has been led by many great conductors throughout its history, including Gustav Mahler, who conducted it at the world premieres of some of his symphonies.

The programme we are offering this season features one name in particular, Johannes Brahms, with the performance of two of his works, the second and fourth symphonies.

The Second Symphony was premiered in Vienna in 1877 and was very well received by both the public and critics. It is often compared to Beethoven's Sixth in view of its pastoral character. And the Fourth Symphony was premiered in 1885, under the baton of the composer himself, when he was 52 years old. Claude Rostand described it as autumnal and Nordic, highlighting its poetic atmosphere of resignation, meditation and melancholy.
